Earlier: Fort Campbell Soldiers Arrested For Gunrunning. Extremists? No, Black Soldiers From Chicago

I don't know if you've already seen it but some soldiers from Fort Hood were busted smuggling illegal aliens into the country. I couldn't find mugshots but based on their names, I believe they're all black (i.e., Haitian surname, African surname, American black sounding first name of "Denerio" and then two other NBA sounding first names of Isaiah and Ivory). News stations are refusing to show mugshots now, so you have to make assumptions.

Since open borders is practically official U.S. policy at this point, I'm surprised these soldiers got prosecuted and weren't issued medals instead!

Young soldiers admit to transporting undocumented citizens

Department of Justice U.S. Attorney’s Office Southern District of Texas

LAREDO, Texas – Two military men stationed at Fort Hood have entered guilty pleas to conspiring to transport undocumented aliens within the United States, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Jennifer B. Lowery.

Ralph Gregory Saint-Joie, 18, pleaded guilty today, while Emmanuel Oppongagyare, 21, entered his plea Aug. 11.

Saint-Joie has been identified as an active duty member of the U.S. Army while Oppongagyare is from the Pennsylvania National Guard. At the time of arrest, each noted they were stationed at Fort Hood.

On June 13, Oppongagyare and Saint-Joie attempted to go through the Border Patrol (BP) Checkpoint in Hebbronville wearing their army-issued uniforms. Upon inspection, authorities discovered two individuals hidden in the trunk who were determined to be in the country illegally. Authorities promptly took them and the soldiers into custody.

Story two:

Fort Hood soldiers sentenced for role in migrant smuggling conspiracy, by Angela Bonilla, KLTV.com, March 25, 2022

Active duty soldiers Isaiah Gore, 21, and Denerio Williams, 22, pleaded guilty December 2, 2021. Ivory Palmer, 21, pleaded guilty January 10, 2022.


The investigation began June 13, 2021 when authorities caught Emmanuel Oppongagyare and Ralph Gregory Saint-Joie smuggling undocumented migrants in the trunk of a vehicle at the Border Patrol checkpoint in Hebbronville. At the time of arrest, both men were wearing their U.S. Army uniforms.

Oppongagyare later admitted Gore recruited them to pick the migrants up from McAllen and drive them to San Antonio...

A joint investigation later confirmed Oppongagyare, Saint-Joie, Williams and Palmer each served a role in the conspiracy as drivers who would travel to locations in Texas to transport the aliens in exchange for money.

Authorities further confirmed that Gore actively recruited people to pick up undocumented aliens.
